HDP Sandbox 2.1 MSSQL Failures

  • #55746
    Ian Henry

    I have been banging my head against the wall on this for an entire day. I am using the HDP vmware sandbox to evaluate the possibility of a hadoop platform. I am totally able to use sqoop to ‘list-tables’ and ‘list-databases’, but every time i attempt an ‘import’ with the following:

    sqoop import --connect "jdbc:sqlserver://;databasename=mydatabase;" --username svc_hadoop --password 'hadoop' --verbose --table my_table

    I am getting the following errors:

    4/06/12 12:45:02 INFO mapreduce.Job:  map 0% reduce 0%
    14/06/12 12:45:12 INFO mapreduce.Job: Task Id : attempt_1402597795499_0009_m_000000_0, Status : FAILED
    Error: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.7 is not supported by this driver. Use the sqljdbc4.jar class library, which provides support for JDBC 4.0.
    	at org.apache.sqoop.mapreduce.db.DBInputFormat.setConf(
    	at org.apache.hadoop.util.ReflectionUtils.setConf(

    	at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.YarnChild$
    	at Method)
    	at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.YarnChild.main(

    To my knowledge and following the instructions of the link here I have configured the sqljdbc4.jar and sqljdbc.jar drivers/ my MSSQL environment correctly. Any help would be awesome, I can’t seem to find any information on it at all.

    I’m still hunting for information on this. Has anybody seen anything like this? I know there is a bug in an older version of sqoop similar to this but here is my version information

    I mean, its a vanilla sandbox install. I would think there would HAVE to be some people that had see this issue crop up.
